Question need help with static ip


i just downloaded fedora 8 to set up in my office and i seem to be stuck.

heres my current situation:

i have an internet connection (E1) and the modem is connected to a cisco 2600 router with a static ip address. i need help assigning the static ip address on to my server.

some other information

my cisco routers gateway when accessed to telnet is 192.168.1.130

my cisco router has an assigned static IP 203.xxx.xxx.xxx

im currently using a Cross over wire rather than a conventional cat-5 (will this cause problems?)

i have a primary and secondary DNS server provided by my ISP

my Server box has Two LAN cards one is 10/100mb and the other one is a gigabit card.

a subnet mask was provided also by my ISP 255.255.255.248

finally i have a linksys giga-switch to connect to the rest of my network.

this is how i want my network to look like once everything is set up

ISP modem <-> Cisco router Cross-overwire <-> eth0 server eth1 <-> switch <-> work stations


i do hope someone can give me step by step instructions. it would highly be appreciated as i am a beginner.

I don't follow... the static IP is already on the router... so why do you want to mess with a server behind it? you would leave any additional public IP's hitting that router and then being sent inside on a NAT rule. you wouldn't put the actual IP on the server directly.

the router that i have doesnt have any ports for any other computers to connect to and it doesnt give any local IP's (if so i dont know how) thats why i want that cisco router to connect to my server so that my server will act as a DHCP server then connect my server to a hub or switch

well it's pretty simple to configure a 2600 with DHCP server capabilities: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk17...80093e65.shtml but now i'm even less sure what your actual question is. on the inside of the router you'd be looking at two straight cat5e cables connected to a switch, one to the router, one to the server.
